Vybz Kartel Responds To Chronixx
Chronixx raised a lot of eyebrows in dancehall last week when he called Vybz Kartel a cannibal. The reggae singer was speaking during an interview with Vice’s Noisey Jamaica when he made the scathing statement about the incarcerated dancehall hitmaker.
A rep for Kartel allegedly told the staff of blog website Urban Islandz that the deejay simply brushed it off when he heard the news, referring to Chronixx as just another local artist using his name for publicity.
“Chronixx had no reason to make such statement about Vybz Kartel because they never met, never spoke to each other, and have never worked together,” Kartel’s reps said. “Clearly he is just another badmind artist using the artist name to get some sort of hype and publicity.”
During his Noisey interview, the “Here Comes Trouble” singer did point out that Vybz Kartel did a lot of good but still lost his way and became what he calls a “cannibal.”
“Vybz Kartel himself has done a lot of good things in life, I must say,” Chronixx said. “Gangsterism, cannibalism… because Kartel overtime became a cannibal. When you listen to his music it is very cannibalistic.”
